9:26 pm
the one on the left is the african region that's the new war zone the turkish army entered it from the northwest plus they used airstrikes the green area is where the turkish backed syrian rebels are these are the militias that ankara is counting on on the ground there moving in on afrin from the east turkey's claws are being drawn together turkey has officially made it clear they are determined to create a thirty kilometer buffer zone right here along the border once the actual armed operation is done and dusted there's little doubt that the turks have enough military capabilities for that so the buffer zone will mean effectively that a part of syria is under turkish control at the moment it seems ankara isn't going to stop there they want the operation to extend further east as well as president

aired on announced towards mon be a city also controlled by the kurds it's and this other kurdish enclave when it comes to the kurdish forces they say they've been returning fire the kurds also claim they managed to repel the offensive speed. king of casualties for now the kurds say there have already been quite a few mostly civilians it's all lies says ankara they say they've all been killed fighters or terrorists as turkey puts it the turkish military is trying to reassure everyone it will take precautions to minimize civilian casualties but in the media reports we also saw more threats from the turkish government like the prime minister saying anyone who helps the kurds with weapons will automatically become a target for ankara's guns but it's not just the kurds to sustain damage during operation olive branch this turkish city was hit by three rockets fired from syrian
